Camogie - O'Brien's Dubs era off to winning start
Dublin got the Shane O’Brien era off to the perfect start by winning their National League Division 1 opener against Derry in comfortable fashion, on a 1-11 to 0-3 scoreline.
Meanwhile, Limerick recovered from a slow start to snatch a share of the spoils against Galway in Duggan Park, Ballinasloe. The hosts had the elements in their favour in the initial period and with Niamh McGrath converting three frees, led by 0-5 to 0-0.
Offaly’s goal touch earned them the victory at Belmont against a Tipperary team which was overly reliant on Cáit Devane for scores. Niamh Larkin had a goal after 10 minutes to give Offaly the early lead but Devane was in lethal form with the game ending 2-8 to 0-8.
